Alan Fitzpatrick is currently fresh off the back of releasing his edition of the coveted Fabric mix CD. The producer has emerged from the depths of the techno world to make his way towards the main stages of electronic music, and his Fabric mix showcases the breadth of his styles.

Alan's label -- which he runs in collaboration with fellow DJs and producers Reset Robot and Rhymo -- is a platform for the trio to showcase their creative influences and occasionally explore avenues beyond the dance floor. For its latest release, the label has teamed up with fellow Southampton lad James Zabiela's Born Electric imprint to remix Drewxhill's 2015 hit, Bullets.

Following impeccable remixes from the likes of Stimming and ESS, Fitzpatrick steps up to the plate to showcase a deeper side to his productions. Still keeping things weighty, Alan's remix leads with pads and four to the floor drums that envelope out into an anthemic emotive cut that manages to retain all the goodness of the original.

Speaking on the remix, Drewxhill explained: "We knew Alan was a fan of the track as he had tweeted us about it ages ago but it was kind of the ultimate compliment that he wanted to remix it. It's always amazing to hear other artists interpret something you've made and Alan definitely did not disappoint!" James Zabiela of Born Electric added: "Alan's been a supporter of the label since its inception and we have been looking for the right project for him to get involved, its great the way this came together organically. Big up the Southampton massive!"

Drewxhill, Bullets (Alan Fitzpatricks Light Up Remix) is out May 30 via Whistleblower.
